goSDL is a web application tool that serves as a self-service entry point for following a Security Development Lifecycle checklist in a software development project. This tool collects relevant information about the feature, determines the risk rating, and generates the appropriate security requirements. The tool tailors the checklist to the developers’ specific needs, without providing unnecessary unrelated security requirements. Security experts can establish custom security guidance and requirements as checklist items for all developers. This checklist is used as a guide and reference for building secure software. This encourages a security mindset among developers when working on a project and can be used to easily track the completion of security goals for that project. At the middle or near the end of completion of a project, have a technical person complete the SDL form.
